New England Holocaust Memorial Photo courtesy of http://www.nehm.com/ On our first night in Boston, we came across this. We were shocked to learn that each number on every panel, on every side, of these 6 columns, several stories high, represented a life lost in the Holocaust. Located on the Freedom Trail in Boston, the memorial is a powerful reminder of the meaning of freedom.

Harvard University Science Center The Howard Aiken calculator “Harvard Mk 1” automatic calculator on display in lobby of the Science Center. Installed in 1944, it ran at Harvard for 14 years. The machine was 51 feet long, 8 ft high and weighed 5 tons. Three portions survive today; this piece, plus another in the Smithsonian Museum of American History, and the third is in IBM's historical collection.

Look! It’s the Old North Church, and Mrs. C finally sees the statue of Paul Revere!
One if by land, two if by sea “ The enduring fame of the Old North began on the evening of April 18, 1775, when the church sexton, Robert Newman , climbed the steeple and held high two lanterns as a signal from Paul Revere that the British were marching to Lexington and Concord by sea and not by land. This fateful event ignited the American Revolution.” Source: http://www.oldnorth.com/history/index.htm
Memorial to fallen soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, outside the Old North Church Yes, sadly, each one of those is an individual military dog tag, representing the men and women lost in these modern day wars. But don’t ask Mrs. C any simple questions here, unless you want a 20- minute, complicated lecture!
Inside the Old North Church The students are sitting in a box pew owned by Paul Revere’s son’s family , while Professor Campbell points out that Theodore Roosevelt once sat in another box pew on December 29, 1912 Look! It’s the great, great, great, something great, ancestor of Bay Psychology professor Greg Cutler !
The New North Meeting House: No, that’s not the Old North Church!
